What's the Secret? - SOLD


Sometimes it is such a relief to return to something familiar. For me that's apples. Someday I'll actually count how many I've painted, but for now lets just say - lots! So when something else isn't working out and I'm feeling frustrated, I give myself a little confidence boost by painting something I know well.

I learned to improve my paintings by watching your apples, seeing as you do the shadows, grays and the use of as few brushstrokes to get shapes. In these, I can see new shades. Thanks Carol.

How beautiful this is! It is passionate and intense. No one does it better than you, Carol!

One of my favorite apple paintings of yours EVER! I'm going to go eat an apple now, and paint one later.

"What's the secret" is just amazing dynamic design sense and look at that brushwork. Each apple is just fabulous. Love the shadows:) Wonderful colors- gotta love the apple in the bowl. You are just the best!

You do paint them exceptionally well. I've really enjoyed watching you paint out of your comfort zone though. You may feel frustrated - but the end results you show here are always impressive!
